Them Pancakes

The bin overflows

There’s food on the floor

And dishes are piled in the sink.

Children are dirty wee buggers,

Never stopping to think.

A game to be played,

A mess to be made,

A busy day firing on fuel.

I’ll clean up this place,

But – as a punishment –

I’m making a pot full of gruel.


See how they like them pancakes!

    1. I’ll speak to my 15yr old. She’s the pancake queen. Every Saturday morning. And the syrup’s always presented in a little cup. One order coming up.x


  1. I can almost picture it! Kind of makes me glad I have no kids – and certainly makes me respect those who have them and raise them without killing the kids or themselves 🙂
